Every Human Being Is a Person

"We’re all persons because a human being is the kind of being that has personal properties, whether those properties are currently being expressed or not."

 

Are Homosexuals Going to Hell?

The answer to this question is easy. Yes, they’re going to hell.

But guess what? Liars are going to hell too. So are gluttons, drunkards, and adulterers. Do you see a pattern here? Everyone is going to hell.

Do Not Be Anxious

"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

Coexist? The Question of (In)tolerance

 

 Coexist? The Question of (In)tolerance: Clemson University Open Forum

 

"Is it arrogant to claim that your beliefs trump everyone else? Intolerance is now a major accusation, particularly against men and women whose beliefs leave anyone feeling left out in any way. Is it even possible to include everyone when it comes to your own beliefs? Could tolerance itself be a form of intolerance? Entitled Coexist? The Question of (In)tolerance, Ravi addressed this timely and challenging topic to a sold-out crowd in Clemson University's Littlejohn Coliseum. The talk is followed by a live audience question and answer session with Ravi and RZIM speaker, John Njoroge on a two disc set."


Have Faith in God

"And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”

Thought for today

"For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."
